Mnet thought that this was something that would help the contestants’ fame go further, but it backfired!
After the first episode of Girls Planet 999 aired, a lot of discussions broke out around the show. Mnet‘s survival show is still the same, full of controversy. This year, there was not only evil editing but also Mnet was accused of using TWICE‘s name to PR for the contestants.
Mnet’s post-production team has continuously put pictures comparing the contestants’ looks with the two members of TWICE. First Choi Hye Ri with Tzuyu, then Dolly Zhang with Momo. However, this comparison is not supported by the majority. Choi Hye Ri is only slightly reminiscent of Tzuyu. And Dolly Zhang is completely different from Momo.
Some comments of the netizens:
–The first one has Kim Minju‘s freckles and the second one doesn’t look like her at all.
–Choi Hyerin looks more like Kim Minju than Tzuyu.
–She looks more like Lee Nakyung than Tzuyu.
–It’s like having eyes, nose, and mouth together?
–Maybe Mnet doesn’t know what Tzuyu looks like?
–Our beautiful Tzuyu. It’s not that easy to compare.
Knowing that this is also a way for Mnet to generate more attention to the trainees. But viewers can already see the good looks of these two girls, there is no need to compare like this. Put them on the scale with famous idols can easily cause unnecessary controversy. These have annoyed viewers and can even create a backlash that makes these trainees themselves receive criticism.
